If you were to add personality as a qualification for diversity then I'd say Chicago.

You have big Polish enclaves? Swedish and Norwegian? How about Albanian? Lithuanian? Greek? Russian? Laotian? Irish? Thats what I thought. When I go to Houston I hear English and tons of Spanish, not much else inbetween. When I go to Chicago, its like a trip around the world, sometimes all within a block or two. lol

Houston has good diversity, but not on Chicago or L.A.'s levels.

that's the thing, LA and Houston have tons of hispanics where Chicago is pretty much equally split between whites, blacks, and hispanics (browns) plus an ever growing asian population.

What Chicago lacks in, Houston makes up for. Their both a far distant from L.A. but when it comes to intergration, Houston definatly got it.

My gosh. I'm beginning to think you're part of one of Houston's non English-speaking ethnic groups. I'm starting to feel bad for giving you a hard time on the Capital of the South thread because maybe the problem isn't that you ignore statistics and facts but maybe because your English is so bad that you're incapable of understanding them.

Chicago definitely gets my vote in this although I think L.A. isn't too far behind. Houston may be more ethnically diverse than, say, Denver or Minneapolis, but it doesn't hold a candle to Chicago or L.A.

Statistics prove LA is more diverse than both Chicago and Houston. Many people from NYC, CHicago,and LA will tell you Houston is very diverse and intergrated city. I'm not hyping anything up. If I think Houston is diverse than I'm going to say it.
